Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This our fourth stay at Uppergate Farm which in itself says a lot. We have stayed in Bray Cottage once and then in Uppergate Barn on the last three occasions. I have never known 'holiday' accommodation to be so well equipped that it is just like home from home. On arrival the properties are immaculately clean!! Steve and Alison the proprietors have thought of absolutely everything to make their guest's stay one to remember. The thought and love they have put into the place reflects just how much they care about the guests. The pool is amazing and the hot tubs just round off the most relaxing end to a busy day exploring Holmfirth and beyond. Farmer Steve and Klavs make time to take the little ones around the farm each morning feeding the animals and collecting the eggs. Always on hand to help should you need anything at all Steve and the team never fail. Thanks ever so much for allowing us to share this beautiful part of the world, I cannot recommend a holiday here highly enough. Love and thanks to you all. See you soon.

Having never been glamping I wasn't sure what to expect but I definitely didn't expect such a fantastic weekend break. With a very comfy bed, a log burner, underfloor heating, our own bathroom and kitchen attached and a hot tub, I would highly recommend a stay here.

We have just come back from a really great week at Uppergate Farm. There were 7 of us (5 adults and 2 children) and each one of us enjoyed our first one away at Christmas time. From the private hot tub outside the door, to the daily slots in the WARM pool, to getting to feed the animals, collect our own eggs, the farm is a truly special place! The games shed gave our 6 year old a chance to work on his table tennis skills & our 4 year old loved the little play area. Blondie and Ginger were firm favourites amongst us all! The novelty of being able to go swimming on Christmas day was great and anything we needed over the week, Steve and Alison couldn't have been more helpful. We look forward to returning in the summer.

If I could give Uppergate Farm more than 5 stars I would. I cannot describe accurately how wonderful our stay was but I'll try. We stayed in the Beechwood Shepard's Hut, looking for a peaceful and relaxing weekend. The location is ideal; down a forest track, away from everything. there are a couple of Yurts in the firest as well, but you couldn't see them from where we were. The hut was immaculate, beautifully decorated, cosy, and with essentials such as toiletries, cutlery, kitchenware, and even robes for the hot tub. There are garden shoes by the door which was a lovely touch - books to read, games to play. Everything was so well-thought out. It is so quiet and peaceful - the perfect place to just unwind. You have wood and firestarting supplies for the wood stove and BBQ, and the hot tub was simply fantastic after a long day of walking. Everyone we spoke to was polite and welcoming, and there's a well-stocked honesty shop in case you've forgotten anything. It also has a great choice of local treats, like honey, meats and chutney available! We had lunch at the Butcher's Arms and I would certainly recommend the beef sandwich which came with a pot of dipping gravy! Overall, this was one of the best places I have ever stayed and I can't wait to come back again.

Had a great stay at Uppergate Farm. We stayed in the uppergate barn and had lots of fun. The barn had plenty of space and was very well equipped and we had use of our hot tub. Highlights were the use of the pool, we were lucky enough to get use of the pool to ourselves as there were 9 of us, we got to use it every day. The owners contacted us before hand asking us what times we would like. Luckily they messaged me to say I’d forgot the first night and offered me a later slot (my children were very thankful!) The best bit though was feeding the animals, especially the lambs. My children loved it, it was really special and collecting the eggs each morning, which we would then purchase. Would totally recommend the farm. Lots of restaurants and places to visit near by.

We had the perfect family holiday at Uppergate Farm. This was our second visit with a young family and we can't wait to return again soon. The accommodation is very well kept and outstandingly clean. We had the added bonus of a hot tub with our cottage, which was spotlessly clean and checked daily by Steve and the team. The highlight is the animal feeding and egg collecting every morning - Klavs is the perfect guide. Our son still calls every farmer in his storybooks and his lego farmers Klavs! The pool is an incredible bonus, which is kept amazingly clean. Also the games hut is a perfect distraction for the occasional rainy afternoon. We were contacted well in advance with all the information required for arrival and could choose our pool slots for each day then. Steve even took delivery of our food shop when we got stuck in traffic on the way there. The team really do go above and beyond to ensure you have a wonderful stay. We can't wait to visit again!

We stayed at Bray Cottage on Uppergate Farm in mid-May 2023, with our baby and grandparents. We were helped out by some lovely weather, but we had a truly excellent stay - this is a beautiful, authentic and peaceful farm in a picturesque part of the country, surrounded by lots of things for fun or relaxation (not least on the farm itself, which goes above and beyond to make its guests feel like very welcome old friends). We loved it so much we’ve already booked the same week and cottage again next year. 

The cottage was perfectly furnished for a family stay, with everything we could want and need. We slept with our baby in the large, bright and airy downstairs bedroom (take lots of blackout blinds if you use them with your little ones, as windows are big!), and my parents upstairs in the double bedroom. Both bedrooms were comfy and well-equipped. The kitchen is excellent and large for a holiday-let, with again everything we needed to cook and enjoy our stay (although we had to hunt around for some not-so-obvious drawers to find some things). The living room / dining room is a lovely warm and cozy, yet surprisingly large space, where we enjoyed relaxing while our little one ran circles around the floor with his toys. Bathrooms also great. 

 The farm itself is also such a beautiful, relaxing and fun location. The private pool sessions (with time you can book just for your cottage each day) were great, and really helped keep our little one entertained each day between trips out. 

The farm is also excellently located - we had great and relatively easy trips out to Cannon Hall Farm, Whistlestop Valley, Holmfirth and The Carding Shed. 

 And last but not least, we loved the morning trips around the farm to collect eggs and feed the animals. Our little one enjoyed them so much he was dashing for the door each morning. Klavs was patient, knowledgable and excellent with guests old and young, helping us all “help out”. A real highlight of the holiday. 

We honestly couldn’t have wanted or asked for a better trip. It was our first proper holiday with our baby/toddler and it was so reassuring to have everything we needed and an environment that helped us keep him busy and entertained, it really meant everyone had a great break together.

We had a fantastic week at Uppergate in May. Four adults and two children in Bray Cottage, which was perfect for us and had everything we needed. The highlights of the week were definitely the animal feeding sessions and the pool. As it wasn’t the school holidays my granddaughter got five feeding sessions all to herself! Thanks to Klavs for keeping the chat and jokes going!! The pool was amazing. Alison emailed well in advance with suggested slots for us and it all worked really well. What a treat to have the whole pool just for our family! We loved the area, hadn’t been there before but will definitely be back. An excellent place for a family holiday. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
